Summer is here and with it has come a fresh, feminine color palette. The bright bold colors we saw on the runways have morphed into pale pastels for summer. I picked out my favorites for this summer’s bridal inspiration from Vogues accessory guide. I’ve also added a sneak peak of the Oscar de la Renta Bridal Collection, I can’t wait to feature this collection in the next couple of weeks!

Tuesday’s Trendwatch – Statement Necklaces

January 17, 2012

I think that adding a statement piece of jewelry to your wedding day attire can seem like a classic and somewhat timeless choice. The jewelry can reflect your personality and your personal style by making one simple selection. Add some crystals or even some colored stones to your simple or intricate white dress. Or if you are changing into a tea-length number for your reception why not add a statement necklace that will throw your guests for a loop. Add a pop of color. Add some sparkle. Add a statement necklace that reflects your personality.

One of my ALL time favorite designers is Kate Spade. Her jewelry can span from one end of the spectrum to the other. From classic to whimsy. Below are a few of my favorites that would favor any neckline.

The Statement Piece – A Fresh Take On The Bridal Necklace

October 3, 2011

There is a world of ideas out there when it comes to choosing the perfect wedding day necklace. Whether it is something old, something new, something borrowed, or something blue, never be afraid to think outside the box. Your wedding day is the perfect day to showcase who you are in every way. From your chosen colors to how you adorn you neck; never be afraid of making a statement. Your necklace can not only be your statement piece but it can also act as a jumping off point for everything from your color scheme to your invitations. Whether you are wearing white, ivory, or champagne, your necklace does need to coordinate but does not need to match. When it comes to pieces unafraid to make a statement here are a few examples that will have you thinking outside the box!

 

These pieces can all be worn with many different necklines. The statement piece should not be only reserved for a strapless dress. A gorgeous boat neck or cowl neck gown would be completely appropriate to rest any of the pieces above. Your wedding day is the perfect opportunity to make a statement about who you are and what you love!

Tuesday’s Trendwatch – Off-Beat Bridal Bouquet

September 27, 2011

When you think of a Bridal Bouquet you would usually think of a beautiful and gorgeous arrangement of flowers.  Even though that is the traditional route to take, why not step out of the box and carry an off-beat bouquet.  A bouquet that would actually turn into a jewel – or a true accessory.  One that would reflect light and offer a bit of glam to your style for that day.  It would not only look magical with your attire, but also in photography as well.  One off-beat designer that I have fallen truly head over heels for is Emici Bridal.   An online boutique that offers heirloom quality bridal accessories…and many items that should truly be coveted.

Each bouquet is designed with hand-cut dupioni silk flowers in various shades.  Each hand-cut flower has selected highlights including rhinestones, gemstones or genuine freshwater pearls.  Many bouquets can be made to order to make sure your bouquet design is just how you love it.  The best part is that it is a keepsake you can treasure for years to come….. a true heirloom that starts with YOUR generation.
